JOY DIVISION BOX SET

 

 

Joy Division

+-

Released Rhino Records UK December 6th 2010

Rhino Records UK / Warner Music are proud to announce the release of ‘+ -" (plus minus) – a unique JOY DIVISION retrospective box set consisting of 10 7" singles on vinyl presented in a beautiful clamshell box. All tracks have been newly re-mastered from original tapes by Stephen Morris and Frank Arkwright (Metropolis Studios) with design for ‘+ -" box set artwork coming from Peter Saville and Studio Parris Wakefield.

Compiled by renowned journalist and author Jon Savage, the boxset is released in celebration of Ian Curtis – in the year that is the 30th anniversary of his death. +- includes 7"’ which have previously been issued and some which have been created specifically for this release. Although they released two albums in two years – "Unknown Pleasures" (1979) and "Closer" (1980), JOY DIVISION recorded many other tracks throughout their career that were released on stand-alone singles – most notably ‘Transmission" and ‘Love Will Tear Us Apart". +- brings these singles, and more, together in one place.  Anyone purchasing the physical box will have the opportunity to download (for free) all the tracks in high quality mp3 format.

As a co-founder of the legendary independent label FACTORY RECORDS Peter Saville and Studio Parris Wakefield leant their eyes to the project providing stunning outer packaging and suggesting the concept for the sleeves. Each cover is based upon its original and – as a snapshot of a band and a time – serves to remind the owner of the unique position Joy Division hold in British musical history

To accompany the physical release, Rhino Records UK will also release a deluxe digital iTunes LP version featuring in addition to the full re-mastered audio, exclusively commissioned sleeve notes, written by Jon Savage, and interview footage recorded during the re-mastering sessions.  As well as promo videos and a classic performance of Transmission from the Something Else show, fans will be thrilled to see a PREVIOUSLY UNRELEASED live performance of Colony from the legendary 1979 Apollo show.  All of this audio visual content has been packaged up within a unique iTunes LP experience designed by Studio Parris Wakefield complete with full artwork, lyrics and more.

Limited to 5000, numbers 1-500 of the physical boxset will be available as a deluxe version exclusively from www.rhino.co.uk and will include a custom Peter Saville art piece only available in the box.

MOTORHEAD NEWS

 'The Wörld Is Yours'   New release details: December 13th ­ single ŒBorn To Lose¹ December 14th ­ Exclusive UK Magazine Edition January 17th ­ 'The Wörld Is Yours', Standard CD Release               Motörhead Music/UDR, EMI Label Services and Future Publishing are proud to announce an exciting new release schedule for the brand new studio album from the incomparable titans of rock: Motörhead, preceded by the debut single from the album, ŒBorn To Lose¹.   In a thrilling new development, the UK release of 'The Wörld Is Yours' will now be a two-fold affair. On December 14th, following Motörhead¹s UK tour, a ŒClassic Rock PresentsŠ Motörhead¹ fan-pack will hit news-stands across the country.    This is a 132-page magazine featuring not only brand new interviews with the band alongside a complete career overview, but also the entire album on CD. It will retail at £14.99 and is the perfect way for UK fans to purchase the album in the run up to Christmas.   Following this four-week exclusive period, the album will then be released on January 17th in a standard CD format and available to buy in all usual retailers at the price of a regular CD.   This follows the fantastic success earlier this year of the Slash fanpack, devoted to the debut solo album by Slash, which was a massive commercial success, selling 30,000 copies on the newsstands before the standard release saw Slash fly into the Top 10 of the UK album charts.   'The Wörld Is Yours' is a vital, scorching statement of intent from Motörhead as they launch Motörhead Music, their very first record label. Motörhead have never just been the best rock'n'roll band in the world. They've never just been the loudest. Or the hardest. Or the toughest. Or the bad-ass-est. No... Motörhead are also a lifestyle. Motörhead are a mindset, a belief, a way to live your life, a way to both survive and beat a society that sometimes seems intent on trying to grind you down.  Which is why Motörhead have chosen now, in what might be some of the most tense times in recent global history, to release a hell-raising, rebel-rousing rock'n'roll opus known as 'The Wörld Is Yours'   Written and performed by Lemmy Kilmister, Philip Campbell and Mikkey Dee in both Los Angeles, CA and Wales , with production once again by Cameron Webb, 'The Wörld Is Yours¹ serves to remind everyone that you should never stop questioning or critiquing a society that would surely chew you up and spit you if given half a chance. And with 10 soul-scorching testaments to the unbridled power this world-famous trio continually maintain, 'The Wörld Is Yours' delivers some of the finest, most important Motörmusic yet.     On instant classics such as 'Get Back In Line', Kilmister thunders that "The way we are is not the way we used to be my friend", and "We are trapped in luxury, starving on parole, no-one told us who to love, we have sold our souls", whilst on 'Brotherhood Of Man' Kilmister roars "You cannot hide the truth from me I know whatŒs in your heart, greed and jealousy each equal, all your days now dark". And with the defiant, uproarious 'Rock¹n¹Roll Music', Kilmister and co remind everyone that "rock¹n¹roll music is the true religion" and "rock¹n¹roll even gonna set you free, make the lame walk and the blind see."     Recorded during the late spring, the albumŒs creation was thrown into turmoil by the poor health and sad eventual passing of Philip CampbellŒs father; the situation dictated that Philip needed to be home during some of the scheduled recording time, so Motörhead hired a studio in Wales where Campbell was able to continue working on ideas and record tracks whilst first Mikkey and Lemmy, and then just Lemmy, laid down the rest of the album in LA. But being Motörhead nothing phased them, and with 'The Wörld Is Yours' the band have triumphed over adversity to produce an absolute stormer of an album.    Tracklisting:   1. Born To Lose 2. I Know How To Die 3. Get Back In Line 4. Devil's In My Head 5. Rock 'n' Roll Music 6. Waiting For The Snake 7. Brotherhood Of Man 8. Outlaw 9. I Know What You Need 10. Bye Bye Bitch Bye Bye   To launch 'The Wörld Is Yours' and remind everyone just why, 35 years after first blasting their way into the world, they remain THE greatest, loudest and just plain goddamn coolest band around, Motörhead embark on a European tour designed to blow your mind.   Dates are as follows:   NOVEMBER   08: UK ­ Aberdeen AECC 09: UK ­ 02 Academy Glasgow 10: UK ­ Newcastle City Hall 12: UK ­ Blackburn King Georges Hall 13: UK ­ Llandudno Arena 15: UK ­ Derby Assembly Rooms 16: UK ­ 02 Apollo Manchester 18: UK ­ Leicester De Montfort Hall 19: UK ­ Bristol Colston Hall 21: UK ­ Southampton Guild Hall 22: UK - Cambridge Corn Exchange 24: UK ­ Wolverhampton Civic Centre 25: UK ­ 02 Academy Leeds 27: UK ­ 02 Academy Brixton 28: UK ­ Brighton Centre 30: Germany ­ Dusseldorf Philipshalle   DECEMBER  01: Germany ­ Hannover AWD Hall 03: Germany ­ Trier Arena 04: Germany ­ Stuttgart Schleyer Halle 07: Germany ­ Berlin Arena Treptow 08: Germany ­ Wiesbaden Rhein-Main-Halle 10: Germany ­ Chemnitz Arena 11: Germany ­ Munich Zenith 13: Switzerland ­ Zurich Eishalle Deutweg 14: France ­ Lyon Halle Tony Garnier 16: Spain ­ Durango Feria de Muestras 17: France ­ Barcelona St Jordi Club 19: Spain ­ Madrid La Riviera
